The first name 

Ade is a first name for boys, occasionally also given to girls.

Ade – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Ade in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Ade in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Ade by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Ade ranks at #6,237. That means there are 6,236 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Ade.

Ade -
at home in

If you ever wanted to meet a boy or man named Ade, you have limited options – because boys with this beautiful name are currently only living in . However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few men and boys called Ade living in one state or another. (If your name is Ade and you live outside of , we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further.)

Ade has 3 letters 
and begins with an A

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter A is a very popular first letter for boys’ names. That’s because 9.0% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letter J is more common for boys' names.

With only three letters, the name Ade is obviously very short. In fact, only 1.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly three letters. Just 0.2% of all first names are even shorter and only have two letters, while nearly 99% of all boys’ and girls’ names use more than three letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.

That means that if 9.0% of all boys' names start with an A, this initial letter occurs nearly three times as often as all other letters on average. And by the way: Of all the boys' names that start with an A, Anthony is the most common.

Other names with 
A, d and e

If you take all the letters in the name Ade – A, d and e – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Dae or others.
